chiang mai

Chiang Mai is a fascinating city. It’s quiet and comfortable. You don’t have to worry about anything there, people just give you the comfy atmosphere. I sat on the cafe all day, reading books and enjoying the peaceful life.
What amazes me is the temples which give you inner-peace! Seriously, the moment you step into the temples, you just feel “Oh, really? My nerve just eased away.” And that’s when i understand why so many Thai people were mediating inside the temples.
My friends and I also went to Suthep Mountain by motorbike. From the top of the hill, you can get a panorama view of the city. Interestingly, we saw the city was under rain and we were enjoying the sunshine on the mountain hill. But sadly, when we were going down the mountain to the city, we suffered from the raining.
I also went to a thai cookery school to learn cooking thai food. The teacher, Pot, was so so so nice and he was a good cook. I did learned a lot from him. And to be frank, the thai food I cooked was better than most of the what the restaurants offered, even those in Chiang Mai. Thanks a lot to Pot.
Another new experience was that I got a ticket for the parking issue. It turned out that motorcycles should be parked in certain area instead of the road overnight. I got a 400B fine for this. The hotel receptionist told me he only had to be 200B for such tickets. Weird thing, isn’t it?

    We have recently been to Chiang Mai too and loved it pretty much. 400B is quite a lot – but as everywhere in SouthEastAsia police officers try to get the most of tourists. Where about in Chiang Mai have you been for the cooking course?

    Chiang Mai really turned out to be a good place for many Westernes to settle down in Thailand.

    I went to Siam Rice Cookery! It’s lovely! The teachers were very nice and helpful. And the food I cooked, under their coach, of course, was so delicious![quote='Alessandro Schneider','index.php?page=Thread&postID=5363#post5363']We have recently been to Chiang Mai too and loved it pretty much. 400B is quite a lot – but as everywhere in SouthEastAsia police officers try to get the most of tourists.

    [quote='Brose07','index.php?page=Thread&postID=5544#post5544']Chiang Mai is a great place to settle down for three months or so to grab an english teaching gig. Met some awesome people during my all too brief time there.[/quote]Wow! How did you manage to find the English teaching job for such a short period?
